Join me in learning the foundational Yoga Pose, Downward Facing Dog.

This is a pose you will do in almost any yoga class you attend. It’s also a pose that is usually assumed that you know. Since it doesn’t always get much explanation in class, I have broken it down for you here in this video. Anyone can benefit from learning more about Down Dog, so hop into something comfy and lets begin!

A few main things I want you to take away are:
1) Firmly ground your hands and feet down – even press into the knuckles and fingerprints to take pressure out of the writs.
2) Send your hips high and your heels down. Don’t worry if the heels don’t touch yet, or the knees are bent. Just keep breathing and practicing.
3) Keep the back straight – better to have a long spine and bent knees than the other way around.
4) Have fun! If it’s not fun come down. Take a dance break and try again with deep breaths.

Practice the pose often and discover more flexibility in the legs, ankles, shoulders and back. You will also get the benefits of strong wrists and shoulders. Repeat the video often. The more you practice, the better it’ll feel. I always love seeing the improvement in the feeling when I practice a pose regularly.

Thank you for watching my friend!



This yoga video will help you relieve wrist pain as we stretch and strengthen the wrists together. In this video, I show you many of the wrist exercises that I teach in my corporate office yoga classes.

These poses are great to do if your wrists are stiff from typing at a computer. Also practice these if you are working on arm balances like Handstand, Crow Pose, Flying Pigeon and more. The wrists need to be strong and flexible to provide a good foundation for your inversion practice.

Follow along with the video at home, at work, in the company of friends. Your joints will appreciate the love!

If you like the video, hit the “thumbs up” so you can keep returning to it. It’s good to keep practicing these exercises for the most benefit.

Greetings my friends,

By request, I’ve uploaded a video for Sun Salutations to my YouTube channel “Foundations of Yoga with Bri“. This is a great sequence to warm the body up and get moving in the beginning of the day, as well as a nice way to unwind in the evening.

I encourage you to head over to the channel. Follow along once through if you’re learning the sequence. If you’ve been practicing yoga frequently, follow along several times through to continue to strengthen the body and deepen the breath.

Let me know what other videos you’d like to see by leaving a note in the comments section of the video. If you enjoy the practice subscribe to the channel and we will grow something sweet. Thank you for watching! You are awesome.

Love always,
